As you know, the Launch Pad is unlike traditional transitional living programs – we not only surround our residents with a team of volunteers, but we also support them with meeting tangible needs and financial help where needed. We are able to help with anything from new work uniforms, college tuition, to therapy. The Bridge the Gap fund was created to make money available to help our residents meet life’s extra expenses. As we keep moving through this pandemic, we are learning with more certainty those who are and will be affected most by COVID-19 are the most vulnerable people groups. Our hope is to help our residents be the most successful students they can be.
